Georgian floor tiles are geometric ceramic/clay tiles that were created with versatility in mind. Traditionally the tiles came in a variety of shapes, sizes and often Black and White in colour. The tiles were used to create an infinite array of tessellating designs to compliment and decorate period architecture.
Whilst being hard wearing and practical, Georgian floor tile schemes served to wow and entertain guests. In the modern day their lasting presence is testament to the quality of both the manufacture of the tile and the skilled installation by the artisans of a bygone era.
Typically Georgian designs were neo-Classical in appearance predominantly using white and black tiles. Popular designs included large format checker boards and octagon based patterns, along with Roman style micro mosaic schemes.
Across Glasgow, this Georgian style of tiling is once again becoming a popular choice with customers looking to create modern dream kitchens, bathrooms and hallways that compliment the look and feel of their period home.
Georgian tiled flooring was originally conceived to create a wow factor in a room and it is a testament to their quality that so many homes still feature these striking tiled patterns.
However time is an enemy to us all and through neglect, poor DIY attempts, powerful chemical cleaning agents and even the vibration from heavy road traffic outside, these period tiling features can literally come undone.
At Were Specialist Tiling, we are a tiling company that focuses on the repair and restoration of classic tiling features including Georgian tiling. We can repair and replace any loose fitted tiles and revive your tiled floor to its former glory.
We can offer the following:
Our Georgian tiling restoration services include careful removal of damaged sections of mosaic, replacing damaged or missing areas with tiles cut to match the dimensions of the originals. Where we can, we try to carry out repairs with salvaged original stock and closely match colours with modern equivalents. Loose areas of geometric tiles are usually lifted and reinstalled at the correct level. Tiles can be chemically cleaned to remove ingrained dirt and residues.

We were replacing a carpet in our hall and discovered the original Victorian tiling was still there. Andrew came to our home, looked at the tiling and gave us a quote with no hassle. His attention to detail and careful and methodical approach are clear in the end results. We are so delighted with the work that he has done. We never thought about having a tiled hallway but we are more than delighted with the results and it has increased the value of our home considerably.
The walled tiling of our tenement flat hallway was beginning to fall apart. Myself and my neighbours agreed that something needed to be done. We didn't even realise that restoration tilers like Andrew existed in Glasgow. We are so thrilled with the results and the Wally Close tiling work that he did. Our hallway looks better than ever and it has added a new sense of pride with everyone in the tenement.
